पहाड़ी

Although this photo essay isn’t absolute, composite and complete representation of title Pahadi, and many more faces, icons, situations are required to completely project it, but I may say this is my earnest tribute to a community of people, I have been watching since my childhood. People who may look ordinary to the world, but their extra-ordinary zeal and their liveliness puts them aside. They may have developed an internet of wrinkles on their faces, but each line has a story within. The most distinctive thing is their dedication to life and duty, and to make it special, a smile which is always present on their faces.

The trail of Ganga

Why have I done this, I don’t know, may be a result of unfathomable uprising within, which has been growing for a long time now, while I was wandering over the woods, meadows, fields, sea-shores and the rivers. Wandering in the search of usual and unusual patterns for months Sandpaper rubbed images of Google Earth were just enough to keep that mild spark alive. The rejuvenation of creativity which was constantly marred by mundanity of urban life. But marvelous nature of the nature can not be undermined.

The Cubs Juniors

I admit, I have this kitten thing in me, visualizing their(kitten) innocent, heart melting instincts bring instant smile, and a wave of relaxation in my body. It may seem kiddish to few people or gibberish to others. But this is something which is deep inside my heart and what I am trying to express. Kittens are the cutest moving objects on earth. I haven’t seen anything else more innocent and instinctive like them. Their twinkling eyes, their attention to even the tiniest of subtleties around them, transform them to the most pleasing subjects. May be, this will be one of the briefest accounts of my observations and expressions of kittens, because of their vivid life.

When I see pictures and presentations on cats, I mostly see their pet life. But they have a mysterious-beautiful life when they are out in open. When they feel free, playing among themselves,  learning to crawl, learning to camouflage in green grass. That’s when I see a ‘Cat family’ in them.
